This was the mother of all farmers markets. It was huge; it extended for blocks. Everything was local and the options ran the gamut from cheeses, eggs, charcuterie, fresh meats and flowers to every imaginable vegetable and fruit. There were food stations preparing fresh breakfast items and live entertainment. One could easily spend the entire morning here. Go early. By... More

Amazing experience. Lots of fresh produce vendors, baked goods, and "food trucks". Samples galore so come hungry. We tried jellies, cherries, salmon, and fresh juices. Check out Packer Orchards and Bakery, Columbia River Smoked Salmon and Draper Girls' Country Farm. Bring a bag (although the day we were there they were giving away environmentally friendly bags.) The Saturday Market is... More

This was amazing in July. Fresh fruit from the growers including cherries, berries of all types and every high quality artisanal product you can imagine. A fun band played live jazz/funk. On the ground of the University.

The Portland Farmers Market is actually eight markets in different communities in the Portland area. However if you go to one, you definitely want to go to the Portland State University market. The market takes over the central park within the PSU campus every Saturday from mid March through December. This has the largest collection of vendors and the best... More

I love a good farmer's market & Portland takes it to a whole new level! Numerous options from flowers to organic jams & gluten free bake shops. Samples everywhere of almost everything & graciously provided without pressure to buy. Numerous food trucks with long lines of loyal customers. Fantastic arrays of blooms & bouquets. A great turn on of the... More

My husband and I are big into supporting farmers and locally grown food, so even though we couldn't take much with us (as we were on vacation) we loved walking around the market. The food offered was gorgeous looking- tons of great veggies, fruits, seafood and baked goods. Loved the friendly vendors and easy walking despite the crowd.

I had a blast trying goat cheeses, wine, mead, meets, pickles, honey, jams, and smelling the flowers! I loved this market so much more than the Saturday Market! Foods vs Art If I ever get a bigger grocery budget I will definitely go buy these fresh products!

This market is amazing! Organic everything and specialty food venders galore. We visited on a weekend trip so couldn't partake in take home produce, but did take a few beets home in the carry on. We ate our way thru ! Lemon berry creeps, bacon spinach tarts, chai tea, candied onion egg pie. We took a raspberry tart and almond... More
